|Don't know his name, but this butterfly, and his many siblings, have been busy in|
the wild black-berries. These are an early plant for us and will be harvested and
done by the time summer actually arrives.
|Because they hug the ground they are ready to go just as soon as things|
start to warm.
|These are then stood on end, slit end down, in the pot, which has a 2"|
high retention tray on the bottom,
|then the potting mix is added.|
|Grow boxes with their built in bottom-watering reservoirs|
|A left over hanging basket seemed like a good place for the catnip plant.|
Hanging inside the greenhouse it should be safe from molestation while it
grows to harvesting size.
|The 4th batch of spinach on the left which was direct sown once things warmed|
up a little (The other three got eaten by something before I could get them
transplanted.) and a lettuce on the right.
|Swiss Chard on the left, a different lettuce on the right.|
|The first and second batches of carrots with room for one more batch in the center|
|The onions have really shot up in the last week|
|These pathetic looking things are my latest try at getting the heat tolerant|
Flordade tomatoes to grow. If they ever take off one of these will have to
go to make room the for the other
|This is one of the two Beefsteak tomatoes we have going. It's hard to tell in this|
photo but compared to the Cherokee Purple and the Yellow Pear they are lagging
behind and some of the leaves are not the healthiest of greens.
|This is one of the Cherokee Purples and these things are going gang-busters!|
|The Dianthus survived the winter well and is blooming strongly|
|The tips of one of the cactus have been burned by frost and|
the whole plant needs some attention as it has grown to the point
where much of it is laying down because of the weight.
|The roses are looking a bit leggy and sparse|
They have been top dressed with compost
and a touch of organic fertilizer.
Now we just have to wait and see.
|We've had this small ceramic planter for a couple decades now. This|
year it will host a white flowered Sutera Cordata, which should be
a perennial in our zone if protected from frost.
